Overview

A stunning ten acre garden restored by Australian garden designer Marylyn Abbott over the last twenty years. Combining a classical Lakefield design with a blend of formal and informal planting, English traditions and Australian flair, West Green offers intimacy and spectacle in a country setting. Access to the beautiful Victorian greenhouses is included and a visit to the formally planted vegetable garden is a must! West Green also offers a Tea Room and shop, is entirely accessible for those with limited mobility and each year hosts the West Green House Season of Music and Opera in July, Please note that West Green House is privately owned and not open to the general public.

Good job I am agile and not very overweight as the seat I chose for morning coffee folded shut and I lost half the cup. However the rest of our visit was very tranquil, the roses were beautiful and the setting is just lovely.

Although owned by the National Trust, the house is not open to the public - however, the gardens are lovely, peaceful and well tended - well worth the visit, we particularly liked the roses - small courtyard cafe served a range of cakes and beverages

The service was not good. Some areas of the garden were reasonably maintained others not. Dreadful to have the water features chained off when they are at eye level and should be viewed from above.

The gardens are beautifully laid out in extensive grounds with something for everyone from woodland walks, picturesque lake and formal gardens. An excellent coffee shop as well. Entry is free to National Trust members, £8 adults and £4 children for non-members. Well worth a visit!

Yes but it's a bit tricky getting through the shop and cafe and then into the gardens.
